Power Pyramid - The God Drums

Power Pyramid doesn’t have much patience for nonsense. That appears to be the takeaway from the Oklahoma City quintet’s last 10 months, which brought The God Drums in September, the Insomnia EP in January and its latest, self-titled effort in July.

TJ Mayes - "When Love Comes Down"

’50s era rock ’n’ roll had been long overdue for a rebirth. Thankfully, the stockpile of capable luminaries has not been in short supply over the past few years.

Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Broncho - "Class Historian"

Broncho has never been hurting in the hook department. The success of the trio’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips, was predicated mostly on its ability to marry melodies with kinetic guitar riffs and anarchic energy. Yet we’ve heard nothing to the degree of pure pop catchiness on display in “Class Historian,” the new single from Broncho’s upcoming sophomore album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

That's it ... "Nice & Easy" ...


Having debuted with “Nice & Easy,” local crooner Wade Tower is working on two albums.

Saturday

For those with “Martinis & Mistletoe” on their wish list, good news: That’s the name of a  special Christmas concert scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday at FireLake Grand Casino, 777 Grand Casino in Shawnee.

Oklahoma City crooner Wade Tower will take center stage to give audience members a night of season music they won’t soon forget. Clad in a tuxedo and accompanied by a seven-piece band and a glamorous female vocalist in a sequined gown, Tower aims sure to dazzle.

This is the first year for “Martinis & Mistletoe,” but not FireLake’s first Christmas-themed concert.

“We thought we would try another type of Christmas show this year, and Wade Tower has performed for us before,” said events coordinator Michelle O’Bright. “He came up with this Christmas show and presented it to us, and we went with it.”

Tower will sing classics by such legendary crooners such as Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Michael Bublé.

He’ll bring the feeling of a ritzy cocktail party as he belts out tunes such as Crosby’s “White Christmas” and Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas,” along with some of his own songs, in a 90-minute set.

Tickets are $10. For more information, call 964-7777 or visit firelakegrand.com. —Carmen Forman
